Exe Estuary cruise

Just inside the estuary off Exmouth, the adult Bonaparte's Gull gave good views (as it did during a low-tide count cruise yesterday). The now regular 'couple' of Slavonian Grebes were off Cockwood. Waders included 2 Greenshanks, about 500 Avocets, hundreds of Bar-tailed and Black-tailed Godwits and a few Knot (50+ yesterday). Large flocks of Lapwings and Golden Plovers were over Exminster Marshes.
